    02:11 AM: A haphazardly written review in the midst of containing all emotions.

    I'm pretty much still crying my eyes out since I just finished this three minutes ago but wow this was awesome. What struck me all throughout this film and the series included was the depth of every single character they present. Even Rengoku, who didn't really have that much of a presence except in the final episodes, did that. I had to admit I wasn't expecting he'd…

    It has been a while since I last saw a full-length feature film. I'm glad I chose Kubrick to end my indolence. Barry Lyndon comes off as a rather typical biography elevated by its striking visual. Frankly, the cinematography and camerawork are both top-notch followed by the film's score. Kubrick's writing was great, although it is easily forgettable in this one.

    I would admit seeing Ryan O'Neal as the lead lowered my expectations. You can't blame me for I first…
